I find the Early Years Resource Factory extremely handy when I need useful information and ideas.
The website makes me more efficient and leaves me feeling confident that I am being compliant and saves a lot of our time. I find that the website is a fantastic support service, especially now when the early years sector is one of the most regulated sectors in the country.
I can always rely on the Early Years Resource Factory for keeping up-to-date with the latest changes. – Rita Byrne

We have found the Early Years Resource Factory website an invaluable resource over the last two years. The website is easy to navigate and offers all the documentation necessary to contribute to a successful practice.
In 2015 we received the Siolta Award. We used observation and assessment plans, family notices and the monthly newsletter that we were able to print ourselves. The ‘A-Z Activities’ were extremely helpful and are also linked to Aistear themes. We have found the Early Years Resource Factory staff extremely professional, and helpful, at all times.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this website to enhance the quality of all childcare services. – Tiny McCarty

I find the website easy to access and not time consuming to navigate. We love the way the curriculum plans and printables link in with Aistear and Síolta.
The newsletter is the best thing invented and parents ask for it especially when they come to the service. We have been recently H.S.E. inspected and the inspectors asked to see the newsletters. They were impressed to see our professional and personal way of communicating with parents through monthly newsletters and family notices. – Mary Doherty

I find the whole experience with using the EYRF website brilliant. My staff love using the curriculum plans and find it easy to navigate, especially when searching for new ideas.
In all my years, I haven’t come across a service like this before i.e. everything available with just a click of a button. Our monthly newsletters are really appreciated by the parents and the content gives us ideas to plan events and celebrate festivals. Over all a big thank you to the EYRF team because I find the website very helpful. – Irene Moley

The Early Years Resource Factory has given me a much better understanding of Aistear and Síolta and how to apply these to our daily activities. I love the A5 size staff profiles and I have developed a weekly routine that allows me to produce colourful records and planning sheets at the touch of a button. This gives our service a professional appearance and gives me more time to spend on the floor with the children. The curriculum planning section is a great source of information and suggestions.
What I really like is that the EYRF team will take on board suggestions and ideas regarding the curriculum and then develop resources and new templates for us. It's like having a whole team working in our service (early years specialists, designers etc.) for a tiny fraction of the cost! – Pamela Connor

I want to thank you for our excellent new website. We got lots of very positive feedback and are very pleased with comments from parents from the crèche and new parents.
A special thanks to Angela and Bernie from Canavan Byrne for the help with the content and the marvellous photos that really make the site special. – Yvonne Donnelly

Tatty's have been using Early Years Resource Factory for the past year. We have been able to create fantastic designs from the templates. We have personalised stickers which is a big hit with the children and created our own personal Birthday banners. In the beginning while getting used to the programme the staff were always available to talk you through any problems you might be having. – Annmarie McCord

I have been using the Early Years Resource Factory for over six months and am thrilled with it. The curriculum ideas and activities are well thought out and went down great with our children. They are aimed at all ages and adaptable if specific. Children and parents alike have been enthusiastic about the activities and personally I love how they are linked into Aistear and Síolta.
ther things I love are the day to day paperwork templates such as menus, staff information, day sheets, logs and signs as well as information sheets for parents.
Overall I highly recommend it as a very valuable resource to every setting. – Sinead Walsh
